Entries for March, 2007

Weekend

I will not post new entries this weekend and am putting comments in authentication mode, meaning commenters will have to jump through a hoop to post. Enabling authentication will hopefully discourage drive-bys. For the weekend, here are a couple thoughtful articles: “A note on the future: Deliberately disabling children”

Pro-aborts suppress pro-life free speech

Two events this week spotlighted the truth: People calling themselves “pro-choice” aren’t that at all. They are pro-abortion. They are anti-choice. They do all they can to suppress the free speech of pro-lifers. At a March 27 rally sponsored by liberal feminists in Washington, D.C., to promote the reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment, one […]

The inconvenient truth about Terri Schiavo and euthanasia

Many comments to my post yesterday, column today The most obvious thread between abortion support and euthanasia support is promotion of death. The underlying thread is selfishness, i.e., promotion of convenience. Over 90% of abortions are for convenience, either as primary or secondary birth control. Likewise, every euthanasia supporter I read on this blog supports […]

Death Angel vs. Terri Schiavo

This Saturday, March 31, will mark the second anniversary of the death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Too bad she wasn’t a convicted murderer. She’d still be going through the appeals process. Yes, had Terri been a convicted murderer, MSM would certainly have taken up her cause as well, like it did the […]

Nurse

Last night Rae linked to this short film in the comments section of one of my posts with a little zinger, “Hey Jill, here’s a video that might appeal to you. I bet if you were still a nurse and knew you could get away with this you’d do it in a heartbeat.” Well, I […]

The healthy baby with “zilch” chance of survival

This great story was just sent to me by reader KLTV Jennifer and Taylor White had been married for several years when they decided to add children to their family. A first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Then last March, Jennifer became pregnant again. Just as the critical first six weeks approached a blood sample […]

On the one hand, the armchair thinking goes, having a grandchild may make the Iowa State Fair a less appealing place to spend the summer of 2015. Why beg donors for money at dozens of events a month when there’s a happy baby to spend time with in New York?

On the other hand, a grandchild could also heighten the pull of history for [Hillary] Clinton – the sense that she owes it to the daughters of future generations to walk the rest of the path toward becoming the most powerful woman in history….

Besides, in the vernacular of cable television, becoming a grandmother can only “humanize” Clinton, who has long been critiqued for her aloof demeanor and rigid personal discipline.

The Republican strategist Michael Goldfarb suggested the timing of the pregnancy was fortuitous for that reason, tweeting: “Just in time for HRC to have a baby on stage with her when she announces she’s running, right?”

The timing would seem to work out that way.

On Chelsea Clinton’s Facebook page, throngs of admirers noted the same hypothetical timeline. “I am sure your Mom will love having a grandchild running around the White House with her!” one wrote. Another imagined: “The first grandchild to be raised in the White house! Hillary giving the baby a bottle while giving a press conference. How wonderful!”

Still another posted a photo of an infant in a “Ready for Hillary” shirt.
